Radio Soulwax Radio Soulwax Radio Soulwax
The Radio Soulwax online radio show has been up on their website for a few weeks now & we are constantly blown away by the sheer brilliance of it. Jam packed of full weird & wonderful VINYL obscurities, presented in the now trademarked 2ManyDj's animation style. Hours of it! This is the best thing on the internet. You have to check it out & be ready to be immensely entertained & blown away at the same time.
We are also, of course, incredibly honoured to have our own track Blockhead included in one of the sets on there, albeit in it's original form Zongamin - Azzazza (Punks Jump Up remix).

RIP Martin Rushent
We at Punks Jump Up HQ are getting a bit tired of all the news of sooo many legends passing away, too sad. HOWEVER, they deserve the respect and recognition for their contribution to music (past & present). Now sadly the legendary producer Martin Rushent has left us. He's responsible for brilliant production work with Buzzcocks, Stranglers & most famously with Human League. Here's an example of the brilliant music that came from Mr Rushent. Heaven will now dance to a different beat.

"Ma, what are they giving me???"
OKAYYY, to be honest Beastie's new album sound a bit standard BB, but then again you can't expect them to re-invent the wheel every time around. HOWEVER, they can make some super flipped movies, this is crayyzay.

Poly Styrene R.I.P.
Without this woman there wouldn't have been any Beth Ditto & Gossip, Kathleen Hannah & Le Tigre, Karen O & Yeah Yeah Yeah's. R.I.P. Poly Styrene, you were great & a big inspiration to a lot of people. Can't believe you're gone.

Rayban Wayfarer Colorize Kit
Do you remember Adicolor? The Adidas trainers which came with a set of magic markers for you to colorize and customize them to create your own personal pair? Now Rayban is doing the same thing by releasing the Rayban Wayfarer colorize kit. A pair of classic white Wayfarers accompanied with a set of markers. Nice, we like! (No we're not sponsored by Rayban)

The greatest show on earth
TV Party was an independent cable TV show in New York in the late 70's & early 80's. It was completely anarchic television at it's best where the crazy & weird was celebrated & challenged at the same time. The superstars of the era like Blondie & Talking Heads were rubbing shoulders with artists like Jean Michel Basquiat, conceptual artists & vocalists like Klaus Nomi & obscure musicians in a very fine & highly entertaining mess.

Lykke Li is back and the Magician is HERE
We did a remix of Lykke Li - Breaking It Up from her first album a while ago. Now she's back with a great new album and this is one of the best tracks from it with a magnificent remix from The Magician. Magician is Stephen Fasano (ex Aeroplane) who is doing very well on his own! Ah...the piano is reminding of Bowies' track TVC15 isn't it??!

Punks Jump Up love the Fabulous Stains
Great film about the fictive new wave/punk girl band Fabulous Stains who's struggling the get their point across in a main stream rock world and a male dominated punk rock scene. This flick is charmingly naive & under produced and has had massive influence on countless alternative bands & acts since it came out in -81. Other plus points are a young Ray Winstone as a cockney punk rock singer and great cameos by Paul Simonon from The Clash & Steve Jones & Paul Cock from Sex Pistols. Quite hard to find but totally worth it !!!
21st February 2011
Just watched Hunger with Bowie and Catherine Deneuve. Maybe not the best flick ever created (Bowie spends most of film playing an 150 year old) but there are some great cool scenes in there, opening scene with Bauhaus doing Bela Lugosi's Dead is great and how about a frisky lesbian love scene between Deneuve and Susan Sarandon? Ooucch tres risque!

Ooohh nooo, more shit the same day, as if John Barry passing away wasn't bad enough, now we hear that Italo legend Casco, the creator of probably THE ultimate Italo track Cybernetic Love has died too. John Barry will deservedly get a lot of attention so we'll focus & post Casco - Cybernetic Love. R.I.P.
